“NT Live” facilitates the collaborative environment in both educational and corporate settings. With two built-in applications (NT LiveScreen and NT LiveReceiver), users will be able to mirror the screen shown on one NovoTouch to other NovoTouch panels via LAN and/or Wi-Fi network. The following figure illustrates this concept.
The following table summarizes the NT Live capabilities of Novo products.
|Model||NT LiveScreen||NT LiveReceiver|
|NovoTouch LK-1 series||Yes||Yes|
|NovoTouch EK-1/2/3 series||Yes||Yes|
|NovoTouch BK series||–||Yes|
